Your own canal house in the heart of the centre of Amsterdam.
Wonderfully private and quietly located in the Jordaan area, in a courtyard, adjacent to the greenery of the gardens of the houses on Prinsengracht. A private building with three floors, a garden and a sunny roof terrace overlooking the roofs of the city and the Westertoren. It does not get any more ‘Amsterdam’.
This is a very special house located at a little court called ‘Nieuwe Suyckerhofje’ on Prinsengracht, opposite Lauriergracht, between Berenstraat and Reestraat (part of the Nine Little Streets).
Here you will find everything that Amsterdam has to offer around the corner, but then with the oasis of peace that your own building offers as a base. No upstairs neighbours, and no traffic or people at your door.
If you walk up the canal, you will find a variety of good restaurants, shops and weekly markets within walking distance. The contrast between the absolute tranquillity inside and the stirring outside is truly unique.
This three-storey house was built around 1899 and has been well renovated and maintained over the years. The house has double glazing. The property has of course full ownership of the land.
The entrance is through the courtyard and private front door or through the back entrance in the garden. There is even a private stone bicycle shed in the garden. The private garden borders the back gardens of the houses on Prinsengracht.
The property is located on the 18th-century ‘Nieuwe Suykerhofje’. A charity court founded in 1755 by Gerrit ten Sande and his wife Maria de Groot on the then wasteland behind the buildings on Prinsengracht. Courtyards have been around since the 14th century and are typically Dutch. It was a form of elderly care and social housing at the same time, the elderly lived here for free.
You enter the building through the entrance at the courtyard, the private front door gives access to the hall with guest toilet. The kitchen with dining table is on the ground floor. The back door leads to the nice, beech-hedged garden of approximately 10 sq.m. with a terrace. Here you can relax on a long summer evening.
On the ground floor is also the family bathroom with bath, separate shower, sink and closet for washing machine and dryer.
The stairs lead to the first floor, this is entirely used as living room. The 3.15 meter high ceiling and the 4 large windows on either side make this a beautiful and light space. The fireplace and the solid wood floor complete the atmosphere.
The bedrooms are on the 2nd floor. The main bedroom (of approx. 4.5 x 3.5 meters) again has large windows, panel doors and solid wooden floors. The 2nd bedroom is approximately 2.20 x 2.40 meters. This bedroom has a built-in wardrobe. The peace in both bedrooms, without upstairs neighbours and in the inner gardens of the canal belt is very pleasant.
The staircase leads to the roof terrace of approximately 6 x 5 meters, which is accessible via a roof hatch. The rooftop terrace offers beautiful views over the canal house gardens, the roofs of the city and the tower of ‘Westertoren’.
